Guild endorses Boomin after founder makes data and industry promises

first_imgBoomin has been endorsed by The Guild of Property Professionals after the Bruce brothers gave undertakings to its 800 members that they are not planning to cut out agents and go direct to consumers to sell their homes, and that agents’ data would not be ‘stolen’.The Guild says it has been in discussion with its members about the platform since November in a bid to overcome agent worries about the platform, which was due to launch last year but has yet to set a date for its delayed ‘go live’.“Like the broader industry it represents, opinion on Boomin has been divided, though the need for fresh competition in the portal space is absolutely clear,” a Guild statement says.“The team at Boomin have made themselves available to The Guild and the membership as and when we have called upon them and have been open, transparent, and flexible in their response.”Voice concerns“At the time there was a polarisation within the Membership regarding the new portal, and we wanted the network to be able to voice their concerns so that we could address them directly with Boomin,” adds Iain McKenzie (above, right), CEO of The Guild of Property Professionals says.To allay fears, McKenzie has struck a deal with Boomin that mean his members will access Boomin through the Guild’s platform rather than directly in order to protect their data.Michael Bruce, co-founder of Boomin (above, left), says: “We are proud to have entered into an agreement with The Guild that reinforces beyond any doubt our commitment to an agent and customer relationship and puts pay to any concerns of a data play.“To be very clear Boomin has not, and will not, ever look to move to a direct model, something this agreement guarantees.”Read more about the Guild and portals.Boomin Iain McKenzie Michael Bruce The Guild of Property Professionals January 29, 2021Nigel LewisOne commentMichael Gilders, Carters of Bedworth Carters of Bedworth 29th January 2021 at 9:18 amAnother Job for the boys!This was the guy that was supposed to be negotiating a Right move discount for Independent Agents and now wants to line the pockets of the Gentleman that tried to ruin high street agents I.E Purple Bricks!

Spafford Releases Awesome Pro-Shot Video Of “The Postman” [Watch]

first_imgAs time passes and the jam band scene continues to evolve, it has been exciting to see the rise of new acts. One such band is Spafford, the four-piece traditional jam band, that is currently experiencing a meteoric rising through the ranks as their name gains more weight across the country. Starting last fall with their “Breakout Tour”, the buzz around the band was palpable and has only been gaining momentum. 2017 is quickly proving to be the year the band sticks the landing. Having completed the full first leg of a national tour opening for Umphrey’s Mcgee with headlining dates mixed in, it is fair to say that Spafford has seen a huge boost in exposure and an increasingly larger spotlight on their music and improvisational creativity.So far that spotlight has served them in an enormously positive way. Taking the stage at prestigious theaters is always a huge step in the evolution of an up and coming band, and thus far for Spafford, transforming their sound from the club circuit to large venues has only bolstered their fan base.  Their sound has smoothly crossed over into the larger rooms and the connection to new audiences has been undeniable.Today, the band shared a pro-shot video of original composition “The Postman” from the beautiful Fillmore Theater in Detroit, MI. See for yourself what all the buzz is about, video courtesy of the band.last_img read more

Should Mount Everest be Closed Forever?

first_imgPhoto Courtesy of Göran HöglundAfter a devastating earthquake rattled Nepal on April 25, killing thousands and triggering an avalanche that obliterated an Everest base camp, prominent people within the Mount Everest climbing community have called for a reprieve. Those calls were amplified this week when another powerful earthquake struck the tiny Asian country not far from the epicenter of the original, killing dozens more.Some of these voices, like that of Mission 14 Founder Nick Cienski, who was present at Base Camp at the time of the avalanche that killed as many as 18 climbers, are requesting that people refrain from tackling Everest for the remainder of the year.Cienski says that attempting to climb Everest is just too dangerous right now because the mountain is too volatile and unpredictable.This video shows raw and disturbing footage of the avalanche that killed as many as 17 people at Everest Base Camp.“The thinking here is that a lot of stuff got shaken, but it didn’t all fall,” he told Jayme Moye for an article published in Men’s Journal. “Whether it falls today, tomorrow, or next month, no one knows. Even though there are not massive avalanches in the Icefall right now, the feeling is that everything is just more teetering than it was.”Cienski also pointed to those effected in Nepal and said that the efforts of his crew members should be directed at them rather than another summiting of the world’s tallest mountain.“The pivotal moment came when we learned that our partner organization had suffered damage to their building,” he told Moye. “It was a safe house where women had been rescued from brothels in India. After that, we thought, ‘what are we doing here? We want to climb this based on what?’ It made infinitely more sense to pack it up and get our butts to Kathmandu and help those organizations we’d pledged to help.”While Cienski calls for a temporary closure of Everest in response to the recent chain of natural disasters, others are pointing to a more permanent solution.Jan Morris was present at the base of Everest in 1953 when Sir Edmund Hillary and sherpa Tenzing Norway arrived after completing the first ever summit of the 29,000 foot peak. She says that the sanctity of Everest has been compromised since the days of Hillary and Norgay, and believes the mountain should be closed to climbing altogether.“It (Everest) reminded me of some magnificent wild beast, dressed up for a circus performance or a TV show,” she said, in an article published in the NewStatesman. “And in the course of this display, people lost their lives – Sherpas, climbers and tourists alike – to remind us now and then that it was not all make-believe.”Morris is not the first to voice such concerns. As the popularity of climbing Everest has increased, so has the amount of garbage strewn about it’s valleys and the corpses of climbers who died trying to make the summit—many of which can never be removed due to limited aerial access. All of this makes you wonder if Jan Morris has a point. Should Everest be closed forever?last_img read more

Growing dissatisfaction with banks offers opportunity for credit unions

first_img 55SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Mansel Guerry Mansel Guerry is President and CEO of CU24, operator of the country’s largest credit union-owned POS and surcharge-free ATM networks, and also provides a range of other services to … Web: www.cu24.com Details Many have come to know that credit unions put people before profits and offer a slew of other benefits, like favorable interest rates and no minimum-balance requirements. They also know they can’t say the same for banks.Nevertheless, the great majority of people continue to stick with their good old, fee-happy banks— while credit union growth remains relatively stagnant. A 2015 Accenture study, for example, revealed that credit unions grew only 3 percent among account holders ages 18 to 34 last year.This raises a few key questions: Why, in an era when switching financial institutions is easier than ever, do people remain loyal bank customers even as their dissatisfaction grows? Why aren’t credit unions subsequently growing at a faster rate? Finally, why aren’t credit unions doing more to tell their story and tout their benefits?Unfortunately, there are lingering misperceptions about credit unions, and now is an opportune time for us, as a community, to change them.  Growing consumer dissatisfaction, even alienation, from traditional banks creates a substantial opportunity for credit unions to win over new members.Our own research indicates that many consumers are largely unaware that credit unions have changed with the times. While they may know credit unions possess a people-before-profits ideology and favorable interest rates, they’re unaware of other advantages.Of course bank locations still outnumber credit unions by a long shot, according to data from CUNA. A simple Internet search on “credit unions near me” will turn up far fewer results than a similar “banks near me” search. The major banks also do a great job of deploying and branding ATMs, which enables convenient account access as well many surcharge-free locations..Clearly, credit unions need to get the message out that they have increased their physical locations and expanded their footprints.  Credit unions can actually offer broader access and a greater number of surcharge-free ATMs than even the largest banks. And, according to recent NCUA data, just 91 credit unions said they were considering branch expansion in 2009, but in 2013 that figure jumped 648% to nearly 700.  At the same time, U.S. banking companies shuttered more branches than they opened during the first quarter of 2014, according to SNL Financial.Another message that needs to be shouted, loud and clear, is that today’s credit unions are more open than ever before.  The idea that a consumer must belong to a special group, like a teacher’s group or labor union, no longer applies.  Today, there is a credit union for nearly everyone.Finally, a growing number of credit unions are offering new services such as mobile person-to-person payments, mobile banking, and competitive rewards programs. All of these things make financial transactions more convenient, with easier access and greater control than ever before.  We need to make it clear that these services are available from our local credit unions, bent on a commitment to meet the financial needs of the members they serve. With these things in mind, there’s a lot credit unions can do to strengthen their message.For starters, we can do a better job of reaching customers through their preferred means of communication, like social media outlets, mobile alerts and direct emails. Credit unions also need to increase their reach to target audiences through the appropriate languages. As a growing number of Americans speak more than one language, some branches may need to expand their bi-lingual materials and capabilities, and this may extend to those new service and delivery mechanisms we mentioned before.In addition, credit unions can expand their reach by partnering with networks like CU24 that offer a wider availability of surcharge-free ATMs, and cost-effective electronic services.  There’s no time like the present to persuade disaffected bank customers to explore credit unions. Doing more to strengthen marketing tactics and messaging is a win-win for not only individual credit unions, but the entire credit union movement.last_img read more

Dirty Brands: How clean is your brand?

first_imgA few days ago, I made an early morning trip to a local big-box athletic supply store in search of new walking shoes. I entered the store as one of the first customers of the day and right away could tell they hadn’t cleaned up from the day before. The floors were dirty, merchandise was scattered about and nothing looked clean.When trying on something in the dressing room, it got even worse. Un-purchased clothes from the day before still hung on the racks and dust bunnies and someone’s used Band-Aid (yuck) were on the floor. It just wasn’t a pleasant experience.How your bank or credit union facilities appear absolutely matters to your brand. You can have terrific consumer engagement from staff and all the right talking points in your brand mantra but it doesn’t really matter if consumers are distracted by an unkempt appearance.As we conduct mystery shops as part of the On The Mark Strategies marketing audit process, a few examples of “dirty” bank and credit union brands include: 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading »last_img read more
